Five Loves on Friday

Happy Friday, friends!  Is everyone ready for the weekend?  I know I am, but first I'd love to share a handful of the happiest memories from this past week! Let's get right to it, shall we?...

We'll start with a trio of fabulousness during a Dear Friend Dayte!

One  //  Donut Delightfulness

Do you all remember my dear friend Nikki?  She and her awesome kiddos made the hour drive to visit us and brought a BIG box of donuts along with the cutest donut plates and napkins!

She sure knows the way to my heart!  We were destined to be besties!

Two //  Handmade & Heartfelt Gifts

Nikki shares my love of all things Disney and has been very busy since our last get together, whipping up this adorableness which she so sweetly gifted to me!  

Hidden MICKEY! // Fresh Watermelon Lemonade Gentle Foaming Soap // Castle in PINK!
Is she talented or what?!  I absolutely adore these magical gifts!!

Our kids got in on the gifting fun as well!  Her talented son drew my favorite character from my favorite Disney animated movie, Aladdin!  Princess was thinking alike and gifted him a drawing based on their favorite photo of the two of them from one of our get togethers, along with some of his favorite treats.  Little One and Nikki's cute girly say, "Unicorns!" whenever they're excited, so I couldn't resist picking them up matching unicorn tees!  Cuteness overload! ;)

Three  // Pizza Party!

When lunch time rolled around we threw a pizza party!  Between bites we went around the table answering questions from a Disney Tag.  We enjoyed such fun conversation which led to laughter, happy tears, and more fond memories created!  

The dessert that followed was the highlight, Nikki's Minnie Mouse Fruit Pizza!  It was every bit as delicious as it was cute!!  Her daughter whipped up over a hundred of these yummy Mickey adorned pretzels which we thoroughly enjoyed snacking on too! I tell ya, Disney loving friends are the best friends! ;)

Four  //  Half Birthday!

This week marked Little One's half birthday!!  Our family celebrated with dinner at the lake and talks of all the fun she hopes to enjoy during the second half of this year! 

Once we headed home we snuggled up for a mommy/daughter tv date, marathoning one of our mutual favorites, Disney channel's Liv and Maddie.  It was a sweet time celebrating my lovely Little One!

Five  //  Let's Go Fly a Kite!

Jason ordered a stunt kite for our family and we had a ball taking it out for some high flying fun!  Little One couldn't pass up the chance to fly her My Little Pony kite alongside it too. ;)

Thank you for popping by this post today!  Wishing you a lovely weekend ahead!
